A short menu of a plant-based burgers and veggie sides, made with responsibly sourced ingredients. Nut-free and gluten-free patties (mushroom and black bean, or lentil and beet) come sandwiched between two-halves of a custom-made flax-seed bun from Thuet Bakery, or wrapped in a collard green leaf.
Vegan milkshakes made with almond and coconut milk in strawberry, chocolate or salted vanilla caramel flavours, and (also vegan) root beer floats.
Housed on the main floor of the historic Dineen Building, Planta Burger takes many of the same design elements as its Yorkville sister restaurant (in other words, it’s pretty good-looking for a burger joint). The dine-in space seats 14, and there’s room for another 25 guests on the patio.
